WASHINGTON, May 20 (Reuters) - The Biden administration has sent out the first batch of invitations to the U.S.-hosted Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles next month, an administration official said on Friday.

A growing list of leaders have threatened to skip the summit unless all regional governments are allowed to attend.
